A breed of cattle with a high yield of hindquarter, bred for its beef. Farmed industrially, there are around 1.5 million in Belgium. They are strong, sturdy animals with a white or piebald coat, with particularly muscular hindquarters, called "cul de poulain". The bleu-blanc belge produces a high proportion of tender meat, relatively low in flavour. It is popular with those who like prime choice cuts of extremely tender, low-fat meat.
